Quick update 3/25/09

Abraham got the breathing tube out again today. He seems to be doing well the CPAP (he breaths on his own but this forces oxygen in his nose). Adults with sleep apnea just the same thing. The respiratory therapist just changed out the nasal mask and the holder on his head. He is on IV fluids. If he does well on the CPAP then his breast milk feedings will start again. The resident apologized that he went so long without any food or fluids yesterday. The child life therapist just completed therapeutic touch on him and he is peaceful right now. They still don't know why he stopped breathing last night. The attending thinks it was related to all of his energy stores were used up because he was not able to maintain his body temperature. A navy wife has volunteered for the name labels. I was able to get my antibiotic at a store close the hospital. I had no idea that the prescription could be transferred from a military hospital to a civilian pharmacy. Abraham is such an adorable baby. I know how much he is loved. Thanks again for all your prayers and support. His care conference is on Friday. Please pray that everything is good. It's always a little nerve racking when a formal meeting is scheduled. Please also pray that he tolerates CPAP and that his feeds are re-started again. I might update again tonight if anything changes however I am kind of exhausted today.
